Hi Gigantic Gang,

Enjoy our #NewMusicPlaylist plus blog bringing you all the latest tracks you need to know and, of course, tickets to hear them being played live at the most exciting gigs and festivals. If you’re passionate about music, stick with Gigantic!  





LOUISE – ‘Lead Me On’ feat. Clean Bandit

Continuing her unstoppable return to the stage as a pop singer, Louise has teamed up with experimental electronica band Clean Bandit to write her summery new single ‘Lead Me On’.

Taken from her forthcoming album ‘Heavy Love’ which will also include the single ‘Stretch’, ‘Lead Me On’ is the perfect soundtrack to your holiday as the formal Eternal singer kicks back at feeling like she has been used.

Clean Bandit were at the top of my wish list to work with on this album and I am so excited about the outcome and sharing this track. The lyrical concept of the song is something I am sure everyone has related to at some point in time”.

Louise promotes ‘Heavy Love’ with a Spring 2020 which kicks of in March and is on sale with Gigantic right now.

Louise tickets are currently available.



LITTLE COMETS – ‘3 Minute Faltz

Released via The Smallest Label, indie three-piece Little Comets are back with new single ‘3 Minute Faltz’ following the release of their latest LP ‘Worhead’ two years ago. The new single is a stream of conscious overflow of anxieties which seeps into every aspect of our modern life. Lead singer Rob Coles has enthusiastically tweeted: “I don’t ever like saying things like this but it’s genuinely my favourite thing we’ve ever done”.

This Autumn sees the North East trio tour extensively playing headline gigs all around the UK during October and November. Make sure you grab your ticket with Gigantic before the they go!

Little Comets tickets are currently available.






TYCHO – ‘Weather

The culmination of years of experience, effort and ambition, ‘Weather’ is the fifth full length record for Californian ambient artist Tycho (Scott Hansen) which he sees as a true creative highpoint in his career: "It's honestly something I've always wanted to do, but it was just something that I didn't feel like I really had the skills or the access to resources to do."

Weather’ succeeds in meeting Grammy Award nominee Hansen’s vision is a gorgeous listen. Released through Ninja Tunes, make sure you grab a copy soon and allow the deep sonic sea to envelop you.

"This whole record is about inviting people into a personal space — like inviting someone into your home. I wanted this to be a human record very much about personal, internal spaces; domestic scenes; and the emotions and the spaces that we deal with on a daily basis."

Tycho tickets are currently available.



K.FLAY – ‘Solutions

Solutions’ is the third album from Kristine Flaherty AKA your favourite pop\rock rapper K.FLAY. This time around, she’s dropped ten tracks of positivity in the face of adversity she faces as a woman in the limelight.

First taste of the LP came with the sassy single ‘Bad Vibes’ which throws off all the downers and shakes free from the toxic haters. The attitude stays high on the following singles including anti-love ‘Blood In The Cut’ and the rising euphoria of ‘Good News’. Definitely check out album tracks ‘This Baby Don’t Cry’ and ‘Not Only In California’ which both beg to be played on a road trip with the windows rolled down low and the volume turned way up.

K.Flay will promote her new material with unmissable gigs at Bristol’s Thekla and Heaven in London during October where she will be supported by special guests Des Rocs.

K.FLAY tickets are currently available.



ED SHEERAN – ‘No.6 Collaborations Project

Whenever Halifax born songwriter Ed Sheeran drops a record it’s hailed as a massive event in music and sure to shoot to No. 1 in the UK and all around the globe. So, when the Ivor Novello Award winner teams up with literally the world’s biggest names in rock, pop and hip hop you KNOW it’s going to be truly amazing. The latest instalment of his buddy records, ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’ sees Sheeran team up with such luminaries as Eminem, Justin Bieber, Stormzy, Skrillex and 50 Cent to mention just a few!

Where as the previous incarnations had been EPs with a handful tracks, ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’ is a huge album bursting at the seams with an impressive fifteen tracks which he has recorded with his laptop on the road with just a little help from his friends who happen to stumble by – although that just happens to be superstars like Chance The Rapper and Cardi B!

No.6 Collaborations Project’ is jam packed with unique collabs allowing everyone involved to excel as heard on the achingly beautiful ‘Best Part Of Me’ with Grammy Award winner YEBBA, attitude laden track ‘I Don’t Want Your Money’ featuring hit R&B singer H.E.R. and the massive rock freak out ‘BLOW’ which brings in Southern rock guitar hero Chris Stapleton and funkmeister Bruno Mars.

We are absolutely loving new classic rap track ‘Remember The Name’ which features not one but two hip hop legends Eminem and 50 Cent which is the biggest earworm of all time, plus Stormzy and Sheeran keeping it real despite the glitz and glamour on ‘Take Me Back To London’. While Ed Sheeran searches his calculator for another symbol to name his next LP, we are definitely going to be giving ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’ plenty of spins!

Ed Sheeran tickets are currently available.
